Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 1/26/2019, Dr. Pien has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

Doctor Pien is highly educated and has great communication skills. She was efficient and quickly figured out what I needed to know and possible courses of action. I would see her again, if needed, and tell others about her.

We are very fortunate to have Dr. Pien here at CCF - an excellent staff member who truly LISTENS to her patients!

Reviewed on Apr 25, 2019

Dr. Pien took the time to advise me of medication alternatives, researched insurance coverage and discussed a medical issue that I was unsure whether it related to my asthma. She is a natural teacher, is inquisitive, and is a wonderful listener. I leave my appointments well informed and confident that any issues have been addressed.

Reviewed on Apr 1, 2019

I came prepared with a concise symptom chart, timeline, medication trials and results, and two chief complaints. The immunology resident seemed to get a thorough history and seemed able to absorb and synthesize critical information well. then, Dr. Pien entered the room, diud not perform a physical exam, seemed genuinely surprised that a person could have a violent allergic to an antibiotic and summarily dismissed this he possibility as well as any possible sequelae. She offered no hypotheses, nor follow up plan.

Reviewed on Apr 1, 2019

Dr.Puen seemed to lack the most basic information and training for a medical professional in immunology. she had no information about potential allergic reactions to antibiotics, performed no physical exam, offered no indecency ent hypotheses, nor offered any possible plans for follow up. Besides a lack of basic knowledge, she seemed disinterested, lacking in curiosity, and unable to assess level of severity.

Reviewed on Jan 24, 2019

I was simply amazed when the Dr called me after my appointment to make sure I understood lab results and to answer any questions.

Reviewed on Jan 21, 2019

Dr. Pien spent a significant amount of time with me. She was very thorough in her questioning to help me try to resolve my concern.

Reviewed on Jan 14, 2019

*Dr. Pien is one of the most on time, kind, good bedside manner, good at explaining to me, most professional dr. I know!! She is great!!
